2016 Reading Challenges

2016 Reading Challenges

Hey, everyone!  Happy holidays!  This year, I decided to do something different with my reading challenges.  I guess I HAVE proven to myself that I CAN read 100 books in a year.  However, this year, I want to focus more on actually reviewing (even mini-reviews) the books I read.  I have also joined a few more challenges this year than last year (I guess?).  Hopefully, I won’t be as lazy I was at updating my challenges as I did last year. Starting with the Goodreads reading challenge, I am challenging myself to read AND review 80 books.  This is a […]

Write On Review-a-Thon: December 2015

Write On Review-a-Thon: December 2015

hosted by Book Bumblings The Write On Review-a-Thon is a challenge hosted by Book Bumblings. From Friday through Sunday, we all band together and write as many reviews as possible. It’s a weekend for you to either catch up on reviews or get ahead on upcoming ones. It doesn’t matter if you write one review or 10 – if you write a review, you’re in. Join this month’s challenge here. The end of the year is pretty busy because of the holidays, but I am hoping to write a few reviews in before the year is through.  Hubby will also […]

Top Ten Best Book Boyfriends of 2015

Top Ten Best Book Boyfriends of 2015

Hosted by Rachel @ Fiktshun,  Jaime @Two Chicks on Books, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, &  Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader I hardly fangirl over book boyfriends so I was worried about listing a few of my favorite heroes.  While thinking about what to write for this post, I thought about showcasing it Facebook-style.  Unfortunately, I didn’t read a lot of 2015 releases so I only have 8 book boyfriends.  I am mostly including YA heroes, but I have added a few adult fiction heroes.  Now, on to my list! Bio: a 300-year-old vampire bounty hunter, Cockney accent, drop-dead gorgeous (pun […]

Top Ten Baddies of 2015

Top Ten Baddies of 2015

Let me warn you though, there might be spoilers so proceed with caution. One of my favorite baddies of all time (possibly) is the gorgeous, […]

Top 10 Adult Romance Books I Read in 2015

Hosted by Rachel @ Fiktshun Hi everyone!  We have now come to the last full week of the year and it now time for us to share our top 10 lists of 2015.  Because I already posted a Top Ten list of Books read in 2015, I decided to focus more on my favorite adult books I read in 2015. I mainly read adult books in 2 major genres: historical romance and paranormal romance.  I also read a sub-genre of historical romance: erotic.  The book covers shown are PG 13, so you don’t have to worry about seeing something R-rated.
